< ?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />Sweden’s Progressive Rock veterans return with another spectacular release. This release is bringing their sound back to its roots and influences. It is easy to hear the Yes influence in all aspects of the album, especially the vocal arrangements.

This 6 track full length is a progger’s dream come true with it’s lengthily cuts and intricate melodies. Listening to this you cannot help but be reminded of Yes and at times thinking this is actually Yes. They are true masters of their craft but the comparisons to their influences will be more rampant with this album, especially on the track “One More Time”. There is a relaxing mood created throughout the whole release that gives the listener a floating dreamlike state of mind.


A great disc to sit back with a great HiFi system and chill out to.
